" I am a professor of chemical engineering. I obtained my Ph.D. in 1988, MS in 1982, and B.Sc. all in chemical engineering from Illinois Institute of Technology (Chicago-USA). I, also, obtained a B.Sc. in chemistry/Biology from the University of Jordan in 1978. I joined Mutah University in 1988. In addition to my academic duties, I served as a director of the department of consultation, technical services, and continuing education, founder and chairman of the chemical engineering department, vice dean of engineering, dean of engineering, and dean of scientific research at Mutah. I got my professoship in 1999. I was appointed a vice president at Al-Hussein Bin Talal university (2003-2006), and a president of the same University (2011-2015). I published more than 25 research papers in areas of blood-artificial surfaces interaction, artificial blood synthesis, renewable energy, waste heat recovery, and biogas production. I participated in many committees at the National and University levels. ."
